Arizona State head coach Todd Graham has announced the dismissal of safety Jayme Otomewo and defensive tackle Deonte Reynolds following an arrest on Sunday that has led to second degree burglary charges, according to Tim Daniels of Bleacher Report.

Both players were arrested and each charged with one count of second degree burglary a day after the Sun Devils’ football banquet, per Scout.com‘s Chris Karpman. ABC 15 Arizona also noted both players have bonded out of jail.

Otomewo reached out to SunDevilSource.com to release a statement regarding the incident:

Otomewo, a 6-foot-1, 184-pound redshirt freshman from Los Angeles (CA), served mainly as a reserve for depth purposes and didn’t record a tackle in 2015. He was a three-star prospect in the class of 2013, according to 247Sports.

Reynolds, a 6-foot-5, 325-pound junior from Pinole (CA), was also a three-star recruit after a stint with JUCO Contra Costa College, per 247Sports. He didn’t record any statistics with the Sun Devils, either, as the Scout report notes he was in the process of sitting out this season with a redshirt.

Arizona State (6-6, 4-5 Pac-12) will play West Virginia (7-5, 4-5 Big 12) in the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl on Saturday, January 2 at 10:15 p.m. ET and can be viewed on ESPN.
